Apparently so, I’m afraid. Like I’ve said before, the argument that Ichigo thinks of Orihime as a little sister type instead of someone he finds attractive is an argument anti-IH’s have clung to for years and years. I can’t tell you how many countless times I’ve seen the whole ‘he’s never blushed because of Orihime! he sees her as a child like Nel!’ be pushed. Then, we get an entire chapter dedicated to bulldozing that argument into the ground and yet people are still in denial. I also don’t see why some people consider the idea of Ichigo being attracted to Orihime so unheard of and preposterous. But then again, if you’ve been convincing yourself of the exact opposite for such a long time, the ‘denial,’ part actually makes sense.
